The reason was given to take the decision of dropping him from the team because of his failure in yo yo tests, recently the Southpaw expressed his feelings and says that he was hurt for being dropped from the team despite putting up a good performance for the Men In Blues, he also expressed that he wanted to play the upcoming 2019 cricket world cup and believes that there is lot of cricket is still left in him.

 

In the recent past, he praised the Indian captain Virat Kohli for his consistence performance, and he also feels that he can do well in the land of the rainbow as well.

 

 In an interview, Suresh Raina voiced: “I was hurt on getting dropped even after performing well. But now I have cleared the Yo-Yo test and feeling so strong. During all these months of hard training, the desire to play for India again grew only so much stronger. I won’t leave it here. I have to play for India for as long as possible. I have to play the 2019 World Cup because I know I have done well in England,”

 

“There is still a lot left in me and I am extremely confident of doing well in these three games in South Africa,”

 

 The all-rounder feels that right now he is on the wrong side of the 30’s and age is just a number, and also says after making so many appearances for team India he feels as a debutant when he hits the ground for the Men in Blue each time.

 

He added: “Yes, I am 31 but, as they say it, age is just a number. The other day when my match clothing arrived, I had the same feeling like I got before making my India debut. It is so special,”

 

Raina clearly set his prospect for the No 4 slot in the team, in the last few matches team Indian tried several players at that spot, player like Manish Pandey, Dinesh Karthik, MS Dhoni, Hardik Pandya, and Ajinkya Rahane, but Raina believes he can fit to that spot well, and also he thinks a series of good T20 matches can open the door for him in ODI's.

 

He concluded: “If you talk about the No 4 slot in the ODIs, it is not an easy one to bat on. Most of the time the team is in a tricky situation when the No 4 comes to bat, especially while chasing. One needs to attack, change the gears constantly. I personally feel that the No 4 and 5 slot suits more to my style of batting,”
